I think we ate all the pies! Went for a family meal of 20 and really enjoyed the experience. With a large booking we had to preorder from the menu a couple of days before arriving but when we did get seated it was all ready and arrived at roughly the same time. Nice pub atmosphere and locally sourced produce.... More

Not been here for quite a while. The food was delicious. They have steak night on a Thursday at the moment . Really good deal for two steaks and a Bottle of bubbly (or wine). Will certainly be going back very soon.

We were warned and it was well worth the wait. Freshly prepared and with thick, buttery pastry. These are not dainty, nor are they cheater's pot pies, those naff puff pastry jobs... More

There was an extensive menu, the typical pub classics but also additional extras and the food was fantastic! I had the cheese and onion pie which was so delicious and homemade. We are returning again in another few weeks with another 4 friends!
